in there in that there are a number of issues that have come up in this campaign where romney's position, he articulated in republican primaries, the republican party platform is totally at odds of a wide majority of the public is. we've seen that, for instance, on protection with people with preconditioning conditions and not included in any proposal romney's put forward. when confronted with that, he denies it. same on immigration, platform is far to the right. in the debate, talking about arizona as a national model, he denied he said it. i do wonder if he's pressed on it, forced to answer on it, if he doesn't do that song and dance again, honestly, i i think it's worked fairly well for him in the last month playing the game that way. >> isn't it hard for him to deny it when we have footage of him saying it at one of the debates? i just played the footage. we do a great job here but i'm sure we're not the only show that has the foot aage. he can't put this on the republican platform. >> and mitt romney has shown a remarkable ability to etch-a-sketch. he can literally say on monday something the opposite of what he
came up? that the republicans and romney -- >> having it provided in your insurance coverage. >> well, you asked the question and i answered it. and that's -- >> you can fight food stamps without fighting food. okay? >> those are the facts, chris. >> ron, let me try it with you. >> it's the difference between saying you don't believe in food stamps and saying you don't believe in food. that's the difference we're talking about here. your thoughts, ron. this other one about norm coleman having been beaten in minnesota, that's running around in ohio is saying if he's elected he won't get rid of roe v. wade. he has sworn he will do it. he says it all the time. your thoughts? >> he's announced it's a personal goal of his to get rid of roe v. wade. i suppose he could rely on the dodge that he won't do that, it will be the supreme court justices he appoints who ultimately do that, but clearly that's the goal. does anybody in their right mind think that mitt romney isn't going to appoint two, maybe three, supreme court justices if he's elected and that those supreme court justices will have
's not just a romney surrogate, the keynote speaker of the republican convention we saw and just to put it in context, one of the major premise sis of the romney campaign is barack obama came to power promising to bring the country together and, in fact, mitt romney is the guy do that. over this last three, four years, the president for all his efforts to reach out and find some compromise has been cornered into a position where he's been denied republican cooperation. so any endorsement, especially an endorsement at this point, even if it's an endorsement about a natural disaster, from a prominent republican, is really worth every piece of benefit that you can get because it says to independents, be it says to those moderate republicans, maybe this president isn't quite as polarizing as we thought. maybe there is a -- can't get the votes in congress what he wants to do he's not so unacceptable. that was mitch mcconnell's strategy. deny him a vote, make him look like a partisan figure and people will think he's unacceptble. chris christie who is not shy about calling people out, saying
. among them, new jersey's republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter who nevertheless heaped praise on the president. >> i have to say thed administration, the president himself, and people a administrator craig few gate have been outstanding with us so far. we have a great partnership with them. i want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this. >> ifill: the white house announced the president will tour new jersey's storm damage with kristie tomorrow. kristie said today that disaster transcends politics. >> i don't give a damn about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me. at the moment, i've got much bigger fish to fry than that. so do the people in the state of new jersey. let the politicians who are on the ballot worry about election day its not my problem. i'm not dealing with it at the moment. >> ifill: both candidates sought to strike a delicate balance even as national and battle ground state polls continue to show them locked in a dead heat. it remains unclear what affect sandy will have on next week's election or on the voting that ha
, that the republicans want to outlaw contraception. >> did a democrat ever accuse romney -- >> quite a few. >> where? >> quite a few, chris. did you miss that debate when they were talking about -- when the church first came up that the republicans and romney -- >> having it provided in your insurance coverage. >> well, you asked the question and i answered it. >> you can fight food stamps without fighting food. okay? it's the difference between -- >> those are the facts. >> it's the different between saying you don't believe in food stamps and saying you don't believe in food. that's the difference we're talking about here. your thoughts? this other one boo norm coleman running around in ohio saying this president if he gets elected isn't going to get rid of roe v. wade. he has sworn he will do it. he says it all the time. your thoughts? ? he's announced it's a personal goal of his to get rid of roe v. wade. i suppose he could rely on the dodge that he won't do that, it will be the supreme court justices he appoints who ultimately do that, but clearly that's the goal. does anybody in their right mi
's the media ignoring planet change. how about the republicans? well, of course they think it's a joke. listen to what romney said during his convention acceptance speech. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [ laughing ] and to heal the planet. my promise is to help you and your family. [ cheering ] >> cenk: unless of course your family is in the middle of hurricane sandy good luck to you. i'm not going to help you at all. they literally think the climate change is a punch line. the planet, it's getting warmer. isn't that funny as your family is in great danger over it. ha ha, ha, ha, yeah, really funny. really appreciate it. who are the people who are putting any of this into doubt in the first place? of course, the republicans. listen to this crap that they pedal out of "daily basis"." >> how do you explain the heat? summer. we have hot weather, get over it. >> that global warming thing is really kicking into high gear, isn't it. >> the issue of global warming has been fortified through substantial number of scientist who is have manipulated data. >> the last

by the hurricane or not. republican challenger mitt romney went ahead and held a rally in avon lake, ohio, this morning but said everyone's thoughts should be with those in the storm's path. >> u.s. with full hearts and clear eyes can see what's happening across the country right now. and on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. we face these kind of challenges before. as we have it's good to see how americans come together. this looks like another time when we need to come together all across the country, even here in ohio, and make sure that we give of our support to the people who need it. >> woodruff: romney planned an afternoon even in iow before suspeing his schedu tonght hen the rricane is is coming ashore. instead, his campaign loaded emergency supplies on to the romney bus in virginia to deliver to storm relief centers after sandy hits. president obama had been in orlando, florida, last night. he delivered pizzas to a local campaign office but called off an appearance there today with former president clinton. >> which means that
picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these states, it's all silly. i think if governor romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to s
's largest newspaper, the des moines register, endorsed romney. it had not backed a republican for president since 1972. as for the vice presidential running mates, both remained on the campaign trail with just eight precious days before election day. republican paul ryan was in florida. and vice president biden replaced the president at a late day event in ohio. so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the race? to examine that and the state of the campaign, we are joined by susan page, washington bureau chief of "u.s.a. today," and dan balz, chief correspondent of the "washington post." welcome to you both. dan, to you first. what effect is this big storm having on the campaign? >> well, as you've reported, it has shut down campaign activity for the most part. that will continue to be the case at least until wednesday when both campaigns re-evaluate whether it's prudent or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't kn

in, and you're also seeing record visits by the republican candidate, mitt romney, as well as his running mate, paul ryan. host: as far as the ground game for republicans in the state, what do you need to have a place in the state of colorado? guest: the ground game, a typically, you start building it about six months out from the election. clearly, our candidates, mitt romney was still engaged in a primary fight, but they have quickly made up a lot of the ground. you need to have thousands of volunteers in place dispersed among -- along the i 25 corridor and in the pocket communities along the western slope of the mounds. four years ago, hats off to the obama campaign. if they did a tremendous job and had a lot of enthusiasm. but this year, that has been negated in the last couple of months by the republicans. host: where do they feel they can get ahead? early votes? absentee voting? guest: absentee voting, clearly. and right now, the advantage is to the republicans by about 40,000 active voters. right now, you are seeing a disproportionate amount of republicans returning their a

in ohio with vice president biden. the republican challenger mitt romney cancelled one of three campaign events on his schedule today. he did still address crowds in ohio and davenport, iowa. he held a town hall with voters in ohio by teleconference. but now romney's slate of events for tomorrow has been cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going

but of course, back in june 2011 in the republican primary debate, mitt romney said disaster relief should be not the role of the federal government. it should be the role of 50 states. >> that doesn't make any sense. i mean look, i don't know how -- let me give you a perfect example with the beach replenishment. i expect we're going to have to have some additional future replenishment in the aftermath of sandy. and you know, in new jersey, for example, and throughout the country, the federal government pays 65% of the cost of beach replenishment and the towns i mention to you long branch, seabright, monmouth beach have had that. they wouldn't be able to do it on their own. they're too small. the state wouldn't be able to pay that kind of -- the. >> eliot: of federal funding. those projects just wouldn't get done if they had to be done strictly by the state or the local governments. so you know, mitt romney is simply wrong about that. >> bill: that's a great example. i didn't realize -- we have a place over across the riv

and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are reasons for it, which are very significant in and of themselves. i would like to return to that in a momen

's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> hurricane sandy has certainly whipped up all sorts of trouble for people trying to get in and out of the washington d.c. region, no amtrak or marc service. most flights from our three major airports have all been canceled. fox 5's paul wagner joins us live now from union station with the latest there. >> reporter: the news here at union station is not too good. nothing's moving and based on a conversation i had with a spokesperson for amtrak earlier today, things for tomorrow aren't looking so good either. inside union station this afternoon there was no ambiguity on the message boards. it was crystal clear. riding the rails a day after sandy left town was not to be, a fact that left some stranded passengers a bit miffed. >> i got a voice message from amtrak outside of alexandria, virginia, that i couldn't get home from washington to chicago. i could have stayed in orlando. >> reporter: that's got to be very frustrating. >> it is frustrating and i'm missing halloween. so i'm un
relief efforts. and republican challenger mitt romney will also hold "no" campaign events today. romney did make an appearance in ohio yesterday but kept much of the focus on the weather. >> a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury. and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and worried about the impact on our first responders. the election will take care of itself next week. >> election day is one week from today. you can find continuing coverage on sandy on cbssf.com at the top of the page links to watch live video coverage and track east coast radar and airport delays, as well. >>> the world series winners got a big welcome when they returned to their home ballpark in san francisco. [ applause and cheers ] >> the giants flew home from detroit and boarded a fleet of team buses for the trip to at&t park. the manager is singing the praises of his team. >> this was a speci
romney appears -- (cheers and applause) governor romney appears to have made the calculated decision that his bellicose and hawkish performances in the republican primaries would be less appreciated by the normals. but here's the crazy part. after basically casting off what were months and weeks ago his bedrock principles and beliefs to copy obama's policy position in a transparently cynical appeal to undecided, guess which quality romney chose to highlight as the difference between the two men? >> leadership. we should be playing the leadership role. america must lead. we need strong leadership. real leadership. i'd like to be that leader. >> follow me! i'll be right behind the president! (laughter and applause) i've got to say, by the end of last night i was beginning to worry we were in some kind of "freaky friday" situation where barack obama -- they somehow peed in the same fountain and switched bodies or just -- (laughter). remember two weeks ago when romney was the one who was all confident and staring daggers at obama and the president was looking at some rapturous dreamland
